1. Reform Sasscer Movement for Prince George’s Ground Game: #Winning
Remember: signs don’t vote. we are getting real work done on the ground making phone calls and knocking doors.
Over the past several months, we have seen an unprecedented number of administrative changes to the core of the top leadership at Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) beginning with Dr. William Hite Jr. In most cases these changes have been welcome news and they represent a challenge to the PG District school system overall as we move forward.
Now in less than two weeks, PGCPS hopes to experience yet another change as five current Board of Education members are up for re-election and only Mr. Edward Burroughs won his primary election.
With the specter of a new Board of Education configuration, the challenges facing PGCPS have the potential to change the landscape of education in this county and become a model for the United States in the future. The Reform Sasscer Movement for Prince George’s County, is calling on PG Citizens to elect a new Board and a new Chairperson. We have had enough with the corruption within our school system and a new beginning will be a welcome recipe. We are aware that the current Chairperson has been pouring money right and left with a hope of duping the citizens of PG County in order to get another term in office. Vote for the right candidate; one who is not tainted by corruption. General Election presents us with the opportunity to elect leaders that will put this county firmly on course to become the safe, cohesive and prosperous county that we so desperately desire.
Credibility of the electoral process is key to the stability of any nation or county; therefore, We must ensure the credibility of all elements of the electoral process. In particular, any attempt to manipulate and mislead the public regarding youth cannot lead in the General Election must be strenuously resisted by all PG citizens. Time and tide waits for no man. This is it!
You have to make your voices heard through the ballot in 2012. We encourage everyone to vote early and vote for change in PG County Board of Education. If you have educational programs you believe support high academic achievement, make your voice heard. If you desire to maintain the current class sizes and stop the reduction in the teacher workforce, make your voice heard. If you have been a victim of discrimination and retaliation, make your voice heard. It is important for us all to consider the kind of leadership that our county needs and for us to play our part to get such leaders elected. We are counting on your support.
Below are our endorsed candidates for 2012.
David Murray -School Board Candidate District 1
Micah Watson – School Board Candidate District 4
Raheela Ahmed – School Board Candidate District 5
Carletta Fellows – School Board Candidate District 7
Edward Burroughs – School Board Candidate District 8
